The police were doing everything
they could to put a stop to the waste
of water by lawn sprinkling out of
specified hours, but they were unable to secure any convictions, he-
cause the people watched for them
and when they saw tbem coming
they turned off the water
He felt certain the citizens did not
realize the importance of having the
tank full at night, or they would
not violate the sprinkling bylaw.
He suggested offering a reward for
the conviction of any one abusing
the bylaw, the infraction of which
is punishable by a fine of SI00 and
costs. Aid. Clark stated that he
had notified the C. P. R. that city

A letter was read from the secretary of the school board, in which
that official stated that, in consa-
qiinnce of the recent disastrous fire,
the board intended to keep the
expenditures of the school down to
the lowest possible amount during
the coming year. The clerk was instructed to acknowledge the letter
and to express the thanks of the
council for the information it contained.
Two letters were read from Dr.
Fagan, provincial health officer, in
reference to the establishment of a
sewerage system in this city. Mr.
Fagan adviced the employment of
a competent engineer to formulate
plans. Then the plans should be
submitted to him, and he would advice the council as to the best sys-
t mi to adopt. In no event should
the city proceed with the installation of a system before consulting
the government. The communications were referred to the health
and relief committee, and the clerk
was instructed to acknowledge the
The mayor brought to tbe attention of the council the serious
calamity that had befallen the cities
of the Crow's NeBt from fire during
past few days. He had wired the
mayor of Fernie expressing the sincere sympathy of the citizens of
Grand Forks, and offering to extend all the aid that the city could
possibly render. On motion, the
mayor was instructed to appoint a
committee of three to cooperate
with committees from other organizations to interview the citizens in regard to securing relief for the sufferers, The mayor named Aid. Clark,

feet of old hoso had been damaged,
and two lengths had heen burned.
Everything had worked satisfactorily at the fire. The mayor and Aid.
Woodland appeared to think that
something had been wrong during
the early stages of the fire. Aid,
Clark explained that when the fire
broke out there were only four feet
of wuter ni the tank. Then the fire
melted the copper wire transmitting
, power from the substation to the
pumpingjstation,and it required some
. time to make the proper connections. This was the reason the fire

would be complied with. On motion, the water light committee was
empowered to employ any reasonable means to enforce the sprinkling
bylaw, and to offer a reward for information that would lead to convictions.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported that steps
had been taken to give the engineer
more assistance to operate the pump.
The chairman of the finance committee reported that the committee
had taken up the pound bylaw to
some extent, but they found it difficult to enforce it, and bad relegated
the matter to the police department.
A resoluiion was adopted authorizing a tax sale.
The chairman of the board of
works reported progress on the repairs of the Columbia street bridge.
The watei and light committee reported having inspected the water
tank, and had found the iron bands
on the lower portion of tha same
badly rusted. The commiitee also
also reported that a serious break
had occurred in the North Fork
water main. A suggestion jvas also
made tbat the council have the fire
limits bylaw printed in the local
papers. The latter recommendation
was referred to the finance committee, with instructions to report.
The request of E, Larsen for per-
mirsion to build a frame addition to
his premises on the oorner of Winnipeg and Riverside avenues was refused.
The council authorized the installation of a telephone in the city
electrician's residence, the city to
pay half the cost of maintaining the
same. The electrician wns also furnished an assistant lo assist in wiring houses.
The health and relief committee
reported thnt there were still some
alleyways in the city that were in
an unsanitnay condition. Various
plans for a sewerage system had
been submitted, but tho committee
was not prepared to mako any recommendations. The committee had
been informed by certain parties
that Mr. Henderson's septic tank
system was not feasible.
The city solicitor stated that thc
proper method of handling the sewerage question would be to secure
plans and specifications Irom a competent engineer, then Bubmit them
for approval to the health and relief
committee and the local and provincial health officers, and afterwards pass a bylaw and submit it to
the ratepayers.

It is supposed that 175 pounds
of opium, manufactured at Victoria
and shipped to this city, was smuggled into tne States at this point
last Friday night. The story is it
was confided to The Sun man runs
Last week an elderly man arrived
and took two boxes, billed to hiin
from Vancouver, and containg 175
pounds of opium, valued at S1700,
from the Dominion Express office.
He had the boxes carted up tt. the
Pacific hotel. There he opened them
and put the precious stuff inr
to gunny sacks. During the night
he_, borrowed a wheelbarrow, and
while the moon was off shift b
wheeled them over to Weston and
put thetn_ aboard one of a string
of thirty or forty hopper bottom
Great Northern coke cars. Saturday morning the cars were some
where down in the state of Washing
ton, and the opium could not be
found in Grnnd Forks, although the
United States customs ollicers had
scented it on the previous day. All
that wns left to tell the tale was the
empty boxes and the old man, and
the latter was too ,wise to Speak,
In the morning he bought a Great
Northern ticket and quietly lo t the
city. As he committed no crime
against ihe laws of Canada, the officers on this side the line did not
molest him; the American ollicers
could not reach hiin bere,*%rid nfter
he had crossed the line they lucked
sufficient evidence to connect him
with the opium. The old man is
said to have had two confederates,
who probably preceded him down
the line. It is stated that the three
smugglers arc old C.P.U. brakemen
who had graduated in their present
profession in the neighborhood of
Mission Junction on the const. It
is estimated that the men' made between two and three thousand dollars liy tho successful termination of
the job.

Holy Smoke
About 7 o'clock Wednesday evening nu alarm of fire was turned in
from llnx No. 14, located at Mr.
J. B. Henderson's residence, and
when the department reached the
scene the Baptist church was fonnd
tn he on lire. Black volumes of smoke
were issuing through the roof, and before a stream of water could be got on
building the smoke was succeeded by
a lurid sheet of Humes. Ill a short
time, however, two or three streams
were playing on the lire, and half an
hour the Humes had been entirely extinguished. The roof of the building
was so badly damaged that it will
have to be replaced, but the walls
wero left intact. The organ, pewn,
etc., were removed, and escaped being damaged. The church was insured for $2500, and it is estimated
that it will take this amount to re
pair it.,
The fire started from the stove.
The church was being cleaned out, nud
some paper and rubbish was burned
A pile of wood lying behind the stove

this work.   Even the children   are
On Saturday last a deal was consummated whereby Al. Traunweiser,
lute proprietor of the Yale, became
owner of the Windsor hotel, nnd at
noon on Monday A. W. Fraser,
who hns conducted the house for
the past five or six yours, turned the
p'operty over to tho new proprietor. The consideration hns not
been made public, but it is believed
to have lieen ill the neighborhood of
$7000, nnd it is generally conceded
thnt Mr^ Traunweiser secured a bargain. Mr. Traunweiser has also
purchased the adjoining lots on
which the C. P. T. Telegraph and
B. C. Telephone offices were located,
and these, together with the lot on
which the Bodega building stood,
which he already owned, will give
him ample room for one of the largest hotels in the interior of the province, and he hopes Unit conditions
will warrant the erection of an hotel
in the near future that will not only
be a credit to the city, but to the
whole southern section of British
Columbia. For the present be will
content himself with remodling tho
Windsor. He intends to refurnish
the house throughout in the most
lavish Btyle, and conduct it on the
same liberal plane that made the
Yale famous throughout the province.
Mr. Fraser. the retiring proprietor of the Windsor, has not yet matured any plans for thc future.but in
all probability he will remain in the
city and engage in some other business. He intends to leave for the
coast cities next week with his
family for a short vacation. On his
return he will likely decide ns to his
future field of action.

FRIDA\, AUGUST 7, 1908
rPHE disastrous fires that have rav-
1 isbed tbe East Kootenay cities
and country during tbe pieent
week have been so completely covered by the daily press that it is
useless to attempt to add to the details. From all accounts, it is the
greatest calamity that has visited
the West Bince the San Francisco
earthquake. The property loss is
appalling, ind the number of people rendered homeless and destitute
runs up into the thousands. Fortunately the loss of life was small,
when the immensity of the catastrophe is considered. At present it is
not thought that the fire will interfere with the operation of the smelters throughout the province, as
preparations are now being made for
the resumption of coke shipments.
One of the greatest misfortunes in
connection with the conflagration is
the wholesale destruction . of the
timber resources of the province.
The other property destroyed <an be
replaced by mnn, but the district
devastated by the flames must remain bare for generations nt least.
The calamity hns brought out one
the finest traits of human nnture,
and from every city and hamlet in
the Dominion substantial aid is being forwarded to the lire sufferers of

Cedio Implicates Two Men
Before being exeouted ut Kamloops
on Friday Inst FYanuisco Ceilio, the
Italian uoiiviuted of causing the death
of Louise King at the Canadian hotel,
ut Niagara, ten miles ninth o: this
city, on November 18, 1900, made a
written statement, practically n confession.
The Kamloops Sentinel gives the
t illowing account of the confessii n:
'•At CV'iiiii's request a lengthy statement made by him to his futher cm-
fessur »us translated by the latter into
Knglish, whicli language wns not
spnkeii by Cedio, und »ns read aloud
by Father Pecoul in the office before
the execution, Cedio immediately before the pinioning process commenced
thanked the officials for the kindness
they had shown him mul suid tlmt l.e
was aware tlmt they were only carrying out the law. He protested tlmt
he was iiino'ieut nud had hoped thut
something might be done for his wife
and family who were in Italy, and in
"The statement, which can hardly
be termed a confession, was made by
Cedio to Father Pecoul yesterday, reduced to writing and handed over to
the provincial police, and by them in
turn to the sheriffs, \V. W. Wood and
H. C. Kerman, the latter being sheriff
of Grand Forks and Greenwood district. It was considered of such importance that telegrams were sent to
Victoria and Ottawa stating the circumstances, and the execution delayed
one hour to allow as much time as
possible for replies. These came to
hand at 9 u'lock, and fifteen minutes
later by the prison time the drop fell.
"In the statement two other men,
both Italians, weie implicated. One
of these, n iniiti named Mot'avelli, was
arrested in connection with the affair
and held foi six months. There being
no sufficient evidence against him, he
was set at liberty and his whereabouts
are at present unknown. One tiling
is certain, had Cedio been arrested
during that period the ease would
have ended somewhat differently for
Moravelli, it may be that with Ce-
dio's life went evidence that might
have secured a conviction against a
man, the extent of whose guilt, if any,
it may now be impossible to ascertain.
"Cedio in his statement claims that
Moravelli had a vulgar intrigue with
Mrs. King, who had left her husband
and taken a private room in the hotel.
The other Italian mentioned, a man
named Caglistro, was courting Miss
King, who was the victim of the explosion. Cedio was aware of the
powder being conveyed into the hotel
and tried to warn King and the two
women of their danger. Cedio had
had words with the other Italians as
to the time it had taken 'to bestow the
powder. In his statement he snys he
was drnnk and says he was going
about with a knife in his hand. He
was in this condition when he tried to
warn King, but tiie lutter promptly
got out of his way, despite of Ccdio's
protestations that no harm was intended. Cedio also tried to warn
Mrs. King and daughter, but since he
could sdeak no English, it had no effect. Cedio suggests that the other
two men mistranslated his remarks.
While knowing about the powder, he
claims to be innocent of the crime,
and states that the others made him
take a solemn oath over crossed daggers never to speak a word about the
matter. They also gave him 820 with
instrnctions to board a train going to
Salt Luke City, and Cedio states that
the first he heard of the burning of
the hotel was from an Italian in   that
'As will be seen, the statement
strongly implicates the other two men,
while it by no means clears Cedio,
who certainly knew of the danger
threatening the house, and was evidently one of the party concerned in
the outrage."
The man Moravelli mentioned above
went under the alias of Koveil >
while in the Boundary.
Those who witnessed the execution
state that Cedio completely lost his
nerve,und that he groaned and moaned
piteously just prior to the falling of
the hop.

health officer. Mr. Fagan said Grand
Forks was unfortunately situated for
the installation of n sewerage
system, and asked if it would not he
possible to move the city to one of
the upper benches, and to use the
lower portion for a public park. He
was sorry to learn that a suggestion
had been made to run the overflow
from the septic tank into the river.
Before any definite action was taken
he adviced the employment of a
first-class engineer to secure levels
and to prepare plans and specifications. Then if the plans were submitted to him, he would give the
city nil thc advice he possibly could.
Dr. Kingston stated that if the tank,
w as placed 200 yards from the river,
and the overflow allowed to run into
the gravel, he did not think the
government would offer any objection to it. He thought, however,
^ hat small tanks for each block
would be the cheapest method of
disposing  of   the  Sewage.     C.   G.

said, could constructed, 8150 or $200

next week.
The city solicitor was instructed
to prosecute the Italian who assaulted Ed Harrison last Friday
The chairman of the health and
relief reported that the committee
had visited F. \V. Elmore's slaughter house, and had found the same
in good condition, and recommended that the council take no action
against it at present. The city solicitor gave the history of the ease, stating that the slaughter house had
been erected in violation of twu resolutions of last year's council and of
the provincial statutes, which explicitly prohibits the erection of
slaughter houses inside the limits of
towns or incorporated cities. The
ratepayers of thc West end were
certainly entitled to protection from
a public nuisance, and, unless given
contrary instructions, he would take
action against Mr. Elmore on h s
own account. The chairman of the
health and relief committee appeared to be unable to banish the
idea from his mind that it required
the enactment of a bylaw by the
council to 'enforce the provincial
statutes. It is not clear to The Sun
where that idea could have come
from. The council instructed the
clerk to notify Mr. Elmore that the
provincial act in regard to slaughter
houses would be enforced.
Frank Hartinger submitted the
plans and specifications of the Grand
